About Porcelain Veneers Understanding the Basics
There are numerous misconceptions of how veneers work. Here are three key points to help you understand how and why they are used.
Thin Porcelain Shells
Veneers are thin shells of tooth-colored porcelain that are fitted over the front of a flawed tooth. A small amount of enamel (less than one millimeter) is removed to accommodate the veneer.
Masking Cosmetic Flaws
With dental veneers in place, imperfections on the front of the teeth are hidden from view. Great care is taken to ensure the veneer fits properly and makes your tooth appear pristine.
Veneers are semi-translucent, which means light passes through them just like natural teeth. Even up close, most people won't notice your veneers: only your beautiful smile.

Candidates for Porcelain Veneers Who Should Undergo Treatment
Aesthetically Flawed TeethPorcelain veneers are designed for people with cosmetic dental concerns. Patients suffering from serious fractures and dental health issues instead require restorative treatment.
Sufficient Enamel in PlaceSince enamel needs to be removed for the dental veneer, patients need to have healthy teeth with enough enamel in place. This ensures the treatment succeeds without leaving your teeth overly sensitive or vulnerable to damage.
Realistic Expectations About TreatmentAs with all dental treatments, it's important for patients to have realistic expectations about the risks and benefits of the procedure, proper aftercare, and the cost of dental veneers.
